Customer Question
She was fine yesterday...

She was fine yesterday but then started breathing heavily

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'll do all I can to help. What is the matter with the dog?

She is now panting and showing no interest in what is happening. She is 15 and a Yorkshire Terrier. She has Benin given lexicon and synulox for a tooth infection. All was well until yesterday

Veterinarian's Assistant: There are all sorts of infestations the Yorkshire terrier can pick up. I'll have you talk to the Veterinarian who'll sort out what is wrong and help you decide what to do about it. What is the Yorkshire terrier's name?

Be

Veterinarian's Assistant: Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about Be?

Sorry Bella

Experience: Hello, I am a small animal veterinarian and am happy to discuss any concerns & questions you have on any species.
Verified

Hello & welcome, I am Dr. B, a licensed veterinarian and I would like to help you today. I do apologize that your question was not answered before. Different experts come online at various times; I just came online, read about your wee one’s situation, and wanted to help.

Again I do apologize that my colleagues could not aid you sooner, but can you tell me:

How long did her signs start after she had her medication?

Are her gums pink or pale/white?
Can you take a breathing rate for me (just count her breaths for 10 seconds + multiply that by 6)?

Does she seem sore anywhere? Her belly especially?

Any black stools, retching, gagging, or vomiting?

Please take care,

Dr. B.
